I played basketball and softball my entire life. Buddie might of been my number#1 fan. When I played on a travel softball team growing up we would travel around the country and her and my grandfather would not miss a tournament. They would travel with me everywhere. (my grandfather passed away in '98). In college she could rarely make it out to any of my basketball games because her back hurt her so bad to sit in hard chairs, so she bought her a radio to sit next to her couch and she did not miss one second of any of my games.
She was such a beautiful person, in fact at the funeral my mom had three men come up to her as we were standing at the burial and tell her how "good looking" Buddie was and that she could "walk the walk" as they said. (These guys went to high school with Buddie). I laughed so hard when my mom told me that because I could picture Buddie walking around like she was hot stuff :)
I already miss her so much and when I hear the phone ring at my parents house I still think it's Buddie calling to see what we are doing. I will miss my cell phone ringing and her on the other line asking me to come over and fix her surround sound/tv so that she can hear a ball game that is coming on t.v., I will miss her cute jewelry and outfits, and her love for sonic milkshakes.
Buddie we all love you and miss you so much. Thank you for all the great memories!
